something that;s happennin with me..

Symptoms: alot of vibration when I get to 65 mph or more. I thought the new tires were out of balance so i had them rebalanced twice, at 2 different shops. So now i think it maybe in my aluminum driveshaft...

update:

brought it into a driveline shop and they said it was too long to make a steel shaft for (or right at the threshhold). I told him to test it and he told me the driveline vibrated so much that it shook the machine testing it. He said the shaft itself was ok but the ends (or yokes..not sure) was not. So they are replacing the ujoints (they said it's a bad idea to use greasable ones with zerks) with spicers and the ends (not sure if he meant yokes or the ends of the driveshaft.) Suppose to be ready tomorrow, we'll see how it goes..
